About Me

I’m a long-distance runner, recent graduate of Rice University in Houston, Texas, and one of four Wade twins (2 sets, 18 months apart, sorry Mom and Dad!). The other three went to the University of Texas and are still doing that learning thing in law school (Matt and Rach) and med school (Luke). Sometimes they do things like send each other to the ER because of a Bagel Bite skirmish, but I have to admit that those three are pretty hilarious, extremely supportive, and truly the best friends I’ve got.


At Rice, I majored in History, Psychology, and Sociology while competing in cross-country, indoor track, and outdoor track. I focused on the 10K and steeplechase in college and I look forward to eventually moving up to the marathon.

Hopefully I will do some more of this…

And less of this…

But either way, I’m in it for the long haul!

My scattered interests include the piano, snail mail, coffee, live music, dinner parties, lists, documentaries, NYT crosswords, Christmas, cooking, crafting, fires, TED talks, school supplies, pumpkins, and tupperware.

If you have any questions about or recommendations for my trip, I’d love to hear them. My email address is

    Allison told me about your blog and I love it! It explains all of the great pics you’ve posted on Facebook. I look forward to hearing about all of it when your year ends. Happy travels.
